Fluorophores. What are they good for?

In today’s blog we are handing the reins over to ChUG (Chicago Users Group) Cytometry with their fascinating podcast featuring Kelly Lundsten from Luminous Bioanalytical Consulting as she takes us for a very detailed walk through the different fluorophores that we use in Flow Cytometry.

A number of new fluorophores have been commercialized in recent years from various manufacturers. These new dyes will be shaping the way we design panels for years to come. We asked Product Development Professional Kelly Lundsten to help us make sense of these new tools – how are they developed, what distinguishes them from one another and how will they perform on our instruments within the context of currently used panels?
